i am SO glad to hear things are going well, and i really have to say lobo is not the only one who learns quickly, lolol...sounds like you did exactly the right thing (or at least the thing that worked exactly right).
and great that you're keeping his name (imho). you know, it's funny, a while back (few days/week), a senior male shepherd in miami (shelter/pound/animal control?), came across my facebook feed, and i thought to myself, "ohmygosh, there are such WONDERFUL dogs needing rescue everywhere, i hope someone helps this one". you don't happen to have his shelter picture, do you?
so, going forward, sounds like you're doing a really good job, i would only caution to say that it's always good to be overtly watchful for (to be pretty safe), at least a month, maybe two, to make sure that you're seeing his whole, true personality. i suspect tho, that he'll be one of the ones who totally recognize the fact that they've been rescued, and are wonderful and grateful companions for the rest of their lives.
there's lots and lots of info here about various methods of heartworm treatment and the exercise/activity restrictions that go along with it (and before it).
thanks for the update, so glad so far so good, lolol!!!
